A new exhibition celebrating the adventures of plant hunters

The thrilling stories of some of history's most fanatical plant-hunting adventurers will be brought to life in a new exhibition by the RHS Lindley Library and The Garden Museum. The Plant Seekers will run from 17 July - 21 October 2012 at The Garden Museum, London.

The exhibition of material from the world-renowned RHS Lindley Library will tell the story of many of history's most important plant collectors, who travelled the globe and risked death, disease and bandits to transform our landscapes and grow our knowledge about plants and horticulture.

Featuring many previously unseen artefacts from the RHS Lindley Library collection, this unique exhibition will demonstrate how international plant hunting has influenced our modern British gardens.

Curated by The Garden Museum, the exhibition will also show the wider impact of plant collecting on our world, from its influence in medicine and science to the role it has played in biodiversity and other environmental issues.
